The Unifor ACL bargaining committee is pleased to report that a tentative agreement has been reached with Bell Aliant, after eight tough sessions of bargaining in Halifax.
The committee is pleased to announce that they will be recommending ratification of this agreement.
“As you are aware, when we started this negotiation the company was seeking major concessions that would have taken away many of your hard earned retirement benefits, but we managed to push back to get a fair agreement,” said Bobby MacDonald, Chair of Unifor ACL which represents locals 506, 401, 410 and 2289.
That was made possible because you, the members sent the employer a strong message of solidarity with your bargaining committee. The committee would like to thank all members who showed your support by wearing Unifor Red in the workplace. Together, your photos and videos made a powerful statement to the employer that helped us hold our ground at the negotiating table.
Details of the tentative agreement will be presented at membership meetings across Atlantic Canada. Dates and locations will be announced early next week.
